HSMAdvisor 1.214 Hook for MaserCAM x9

January 27, 2016, 9:39 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

HSMAdvisor the Hook for MasterCAM x9 has had massive changes since the last update

  • Completely redone Operation Import/Export functionality
  • Added "Insert Operation" command (Add it to MasterCam toolbar through Customize->Toolbars->HSMADVISOR->select item,select toolbar-> Add..)
  • Reworked MC Toolbar Icons
  • Better tool Recognition
  • Added support for ALL milling (2d, 3d, HST) operations. 
  • Fixed a huge number of problems including those with coolant, tool numbers and some unsupported operations.

 

HSMAdvisor hook for MasterCAM currently supports only MC x9.

Due to large amount of work I have done on x9 hook I decided to not port it to support x8. I simply have no time resources to do so. I only have one life you know!

Later versions of MasterCAM will, however, be fully supported.


Machinists Spoke and We Listened

January 17, 2016, 11:49 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Every month we are getting a good amount of feedback and suggestions.

Everything is getting prioritized and eventually implemented. Urgent stuff is getting done fast. And other "nice to haves" are getting pushed down according to their usefulness / difficulty (yes, everyone secretly wishes my program could also edit and create HSM g-code :)).

It is amazing, but almost half of HSMAdvisor's features were originally suggested by our loyal users!

The latest update HSMAdvisor 1.213 addresses some of the feedback I have received last couple of months.

So the New features are:

  1. Smart Depth and Width of Cut (DOC/WOC) suggestion (user suggested)
  2. Compressing of Shared Tool DataBases
  3. Display of Stock status on Tool DataBase tables (user suggested)
  4. Various little improvements like new Heli-Coil reference, better DOC/WOC calculation better multitasking, etc. (mostly based on user feedback)

Let's go over the most important ones here:

February 14, 2015, 10:47 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I have just finished uploading the latest update for FSWizard apps to both iOS and Android stores.

Your iOS update should be available in about 3 to 5 days, while it is already available on Google Play.

As always my thanks go to Apple for killing 90% of my day on trying to find and fix stupid xCode quirks.
Thanks, apple guys! I wouldn't know what to do with all of my time if your stuff worked the way it was supposed to!

Here are just some of the changes in the latest version v1.40

  • Added new materials
  • Fixed Turning MRR/HP Calculation
  • Fixed Sticky Lead Angle
  • Changed WOC label in Turning mode to DOC

First FSWizard video!

January 17, 2015, 5:43 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

I have just uploaded my first FSWizard CNC MAchinists Speed and Feed Calculator video tutorial.

This is a quick walk through the basic functionality when using milling tools.

Please excuse my tired voice and occasional stuttering. This was my 9th take- every time either my computer crashed or i was interrupted by my kids running around and causing mess.

I am planning to release more videos. So please let me know what other topics i need to cover.

Check it out!

FSWizard is now available not only online and on Android, but on ITunes as well.

For now only the free LITE version will be available.
I wanted to make sure everything is solid enough to roll out the PRO version.

FSWizard PRO, if everything goes smoothly, should be coming in a week or so.

By the way iOs and Android versions are being developed parallel to each-other, so they will be sharing identical functionality.

New materials are here!

November 18, 2013, 1:17 am by Eldar Gerfanov

I have just completed revising HSMAdvisor's material library.

Around 20 different materials have been added.
Some speeds and feeds were adjusted as well.

New library is not yet available in the official release, but you cen get it as a separate file from here

Just scroll to the bottom of the page there and download the file.
Instructions of how to use it are there as well.

Once a new update is ready to be published i will include the new library into the official release.

The list of added materials includes Toolox, Weldox and other pre-hardened steels.

Also graphite was added to hard non-metals.


FSWizard 1.21 for android is now available

November 17, 2013, 1:46 am by Eldar Gerfanov

In this update i fixed some of the annoying things that were present in my app before.

Firstly i have totally changed the way app renders. Instead of using gradient backgrounds i am now using background images everywhere. This prevents glitches that some users reported before.

Then main menu now takes the whole screen. Small but descriptive icons were added to ease the navigation. Also scrolling problems for all of the devices were fixed there.

Phone Back button now exits the main menu or the virtual keyboard.

To shut down the app you have to tap Back key twice. This prevents acidental exits.

Phone Menu button opens main menu now. So the workflow is a lot like in the rest of android apps.

As a test i gave it to my wife to try out. She was pleased and managed to run through the whole app within a couple of minutes and never got lost. She especially liked menu icons, said they looked cool.

Email me or post on forums if you have any feedback.
